British brawler Paul Daley is set to make his way back to Strikeforce after a little less than a year away from the promotion when he fights in March as part of the organization’s show in Columbus, Ohio. Daley was last seen under the Strikeforce banner in July 2011 where he lost a decision to undefeated wrestler Tyron Woodley.

According to an official announcement the 29-11-2 welterweight will face PRIDE/SRC veteran Kazuo Misaki on a lineup already set to feature KJ Noons vs. Josh Thomson and Miesha Tate vs. Ronda Rousey.

Dana White Says Daley Could Eventually be Welcomed Back to the UFC

Misaki, who holds an overall record of 24-11-2 with fifteen finishes, is 1-0 in Strikeforce courtesy of a 2008 TKO over Joe Riggs but hasn’t been seen inside the company’s cage since. He is currently on a two-fight winning streak with both victories coming by way of a strike-based stoppage.

Similarly, Daley has also won back-to-back bouts with his most recent rumble resulting in an outpointing of Luigi Fioravanti. The bulk of his success has been the result of his notoriously powerful stand-up and is highlighted by past TKOs over Duane Ludwig and Martin Kampmann.

Strikeforce also revealed bantamweight contender Sarah Kaufman will face Alexis Davis in other main card action at the March 3 event.
